A.

Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing for a £727k home?

A.

Confusion over this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may inflate your solicitor's invoice. Your Bartley Green conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements. Additional fees found in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What is the council tax on a terraced dwelling in Bartley Green?

A.

In most cases the conveyancer's title report should supply the relevant Birmingham council tax band.

The correct rates for properties in Bartley Green are set out in detail at the Birmingham local authority website. As at, 05/08/2012, rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £841.00
  • Band B - £981.00
  • Band C - £1,121.00
  • Band D - £1,261.00
  • Band E - £1,542.00
  • Band F - £1,822.00
  • Band G - £2,102.00
  • Band H - £2,522.00

Q.

What are 'fixtures and fittings'?

In the main, there is no absolute definition of fixtures and fittings. The assumptions held by the parties may vary; this makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.

Q.

What should I be aware of if we buy a building inside a Birmingham council designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing for purchasers includes making enquiries of the local authority to identify conservation area status and the existence of consent for any developments. .

Q.

Would acquiring a survey be sensible if we are purchasing residential property in Bartley Green?

A.

It is suggested that purchasers book a property survey if purchasing in Bartley Green. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that will impact a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, which include cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding last year in the Midlands we are wondering whether property environmental searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

Your property solicitor in Bartley Green should always get rigorous flood searches if the standard conveyancing searches determine a any kind of Bartley Green area flood risk

For greater peace of mind why not get in touch with a neighbour of the property.

Q.

We are buying a home in Blyth. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

A Bartley Green conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the property being purchased is located. In Bartley Green's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Blyth, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Where can we find out additional data on the Bartley Green and Bartley Green conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, keep records of the state of conservation areas. Conservation area concerns e.g. public spaces, side extensions or ugly highway signs are overseen by the local authority (Birmingham).
